. when it came time to move it to the mill in maryland where it would be cast into bronze, he refused to reveal how to take apart. work on the statue became stalled until a man by the name of philip reed solved the mystery. he was an enslaved african american. he worked for the owner of a foundry and was selected to test the bronze statue. he figured out how to disassemble the plaster model by attaching an iron "to the statue's head and gently, ever so gently lifting the top section until a hairline crack appeared. the crack indicated where the joints were located and he then repeated the operation until the five different sections of the statue were discovered. we know about philip reed because the son of a foundry under shared this story back in 1869. it describes philip reed as an expert an admirable work and and highly esteemed by all who knew him. we stand here today not only because of philip reed but for other enslaved african americans like them who worked tirelessly and sacrificed in the face of strife. these plaques in their own right will serve as a symbol of their sacrific

what they are. what you are hearing, by the way, it is not dissimilar to what i hear in maryland and what regulators are here across the country. bank lending is not where it should be. part of it has to do with the lack of robust demand. you will hear a lot about -- a lot of in a boat -- an adult about how there are not enough borrowers. we also hear stories about credit-worthy borrowers. they have credible cash flows. the bankers did not have to be dependent on the week collateral coming from real- estate. there is cash flow here. these are borrowers that can sustain new loans. why does borrowers are not able to get loans is a challenge. i think we need to do some work on that. significantly, banks lending to small businesses is a critical factor in spurring employment. the notion of getting this right will also have good consequences for employment. >> does anybody else want to jump in on that conversation? >> the federal reserve has just concluded before-on sessions we have had around the country in which we tried to bring together lenders, small-business owners, and others t
is not spread so if you one-- pick one state maryland, you could say most of the cases are in baltimore and montgomery, prince george's county but even in the city so in the district of columbia it is concentrated so there is much more hiv is to the river here than other parts. so the geographic issues are something we think the strategy needs to address. >> can i just say also, piece of this puzzle is that i think, tell the passage of the affordable care act, the dealing with health disparities and the gap in access to good care were dramatic, and some of that have different levels of eligibility for medicaid. that will change. states have different outreach efforts with the doubling of the community health center footprint that occurred because the recovery act, that will change. with the pipeline for additional medical providers, particularly medical providers coming out of minority communities. i think we have some strategies now in place and some funding now in place that goes directly to some of the disparities, some of which are geographic and some of which are economic that have

representing the entire state, they have to understand -- you have a conservative estern maryland, liberal montgomery county and baltimore city and so on -- i think all ofhis is being reinforced and is coming on so fast, but the change in the media. it has become so targeted and fragmented that we tend to and reinforce only those views. we only have -- we do not have the nightly news that covers different perspectives. i think that is a real danger. i do not know what the solution is. that is where we turn to the academic community for research. one area where i would like to disagree, cordially, is the issue of federalism. i am not particularly alarmed about the role of federalism. i think the are times in which a very strong national government needs to be there. i think without the national government stepping up on the issue of civil rights, for example, i think without the federal government stepping up on the issue of national environmental policy, even now, without the national government stepping in in a big way to deal with some of these institutional financial issues and
